New Way Stationary Engines

Aim - To serve and support the New Way Stationary Engine restoration community.
There was a New Way Stationary Motor inclined to Hit and Miss. It was designed that way but intermittently it would missfire and this in the confines of the beekeepers shed fired my imagination, grabbing my senses. I just loved the sound of the New Way 3.5Hp working - likely fuelled by a too rich mixture.
With each missfire came the tell tale puff of blue smoke and via the old sawbench, the beekeeping manufacturing business was underway, alive and well. Alf was in his element. Romance, nah, hard work but Hoots the New Way went a long way in firing the imagination of times past running in the present. The present, after all, that's where life is, it's not in the past, but romancing the past, that's the present if you're living it.
The priveledge of life. Present and past is now!!! - alive.

New Way Engine Owners
Good, reliable and comprehensive documentation that relates to Engines of the early 1900s is not easy to find. We have added an extract from this book by Robert L Streeter to the New Way Library. The pages we have added specifically relate to New Way Engines as used by the author.

Consequently, we bring to your notice the following:-
INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES - Theory and Design by Robert L Streeter

We have made 6 pages available in the Library that relate specifically to New Way engines but the book is so much more. It is a great reference for all issues faced by the Engine Restorer.

For the 6 Pages in our library click:-
Streeter New Way reference

This comes from a superb text book that explains in detail the workings of GAS and OIL Engines in the early 20th Century. The document we have posted is an extract from is the first edition 1915. If  you are a stationary engine enthusiast of any engine then we believe it is the one for you as it is specifically related to the early years of stationary engines.

There are issues from later years available but they are progressive and so loose some of the emphasis of the early years such as hitt and miss details.

We give you the extract that relates to New Way Engines but this little text book is a mine of information relating to all the common issues of stationary engines. If you want to expand your knowledge to tackle the things that bug you then this could be the book just for you.

TO GET IT :- Options on line to download a copy. On our advice ensure it is the 1915 edition so you get the stuff relating to the early engines.
Here is one example

Of course you can get a print on demand copy from various places and quality. A quick search in Biblio.Com or Amazon for "Internal combustion Engines Streeter" will give plenty of options for print on demand.

Please enjoy the extract. It deals with the issues of Air Cooled Engines and brings specifics on New Way. The remainder of the book is also very applicable for your knowledge in restoring stationary engines.
